Free Kingslayer for EVERYONE!
I'll take my level 12 tankadin tonight ;>
Ok now its pushing it...
I think they need to make it so that while you can turn it off, you can turn it down. I think that would be a more reasonable way to use the buff. Instead all or nothing.
I can't decide if this is good or bad, assuming they are continuing with this through Cataclysm.It makes content you've already cleared easier, and can get you past a brick wall boss.However this is really making encounters and therefore lore characters trivial once the buff is stupidly high , and is nursing the "brute force" mentality in players.With raids being easier some people now simply see raids as a road to gear rather than gear as a road to raids.I suppose this is somewhat better than the "nerf patch"...Oh yeah, and has anyone actually turned the buff off other than to just annoy the raid?
And along with it comes another wave of QQ because raiding is now ezmode or whatever.Nevermind that you can still turn the buff OFF and do it the hard way if you want, or that the buff has been provided gradually and that they were completely up front about it saying it would eventually go to 30% because they want people to see content...no, this is totally Blizzard blindsiding people and giving victories to people who are somehow completely undeserving of them, and making the victory that people worked so hard for in the earlier months completely worthless./facepalm
Who's actually going to turn it off.
I honestly don't see why people care? So what if people are now downing more bosses in ICC, does that really effect you and your enjoyment of the game? My guild is on the three stooges in 25 man and I can't wait to see the rest of the instance, buff or not.
Hardcore raiders can turn it off.People who aren't in a big raiding guild can turn it on and actually see the whole raid.Why the QQ?
I have mixed feelings about the buff.In one hand, I feel the game already has normal mode and heroic mode if you want it either normal difficulty or hard. Also I feel if they want an easy mode, it should be available with lesser rewards, so you actually see the content but get less reward for less effort (I think it makes sense).At the other hand, thanks to my inability to find a good weekly raid without joining a guild, I know this buff gonna help me seeing the content otherwise I would not be able too. Back to point one however, I want to kick LK's ass with no buffs nor help, but problem is, you need a group of 10(25) decent people to do that...So well. The buff is there, hardcore guilds are already farming LK anyways and it'll help newer guilds/raids to advance further and see more content, gear obtained is going to be replaced soon anyways.
There's a difference between Kingslayer with 'achieved by X several months ago' and Kingslayer with 'achieved by X on whatever day the 30% buff comes out.' It's not quite just two people with identical achievements.
To all those who hate this buff then please shut the hell up.If you haven't finished doing ICC this will help you greatly.
yaynow i can watch my guild fail in ICC.only now with 20% buffgood times all around
